Hi,
I'm writing an application, that should
show a live video (from pc camera) on one window,
and another window with some control on it,
should appears below it.

I'm using 'IVideoWindow' Interface from DirectShow.
This window should be semi transparent.

I think that the AlphaBlend() SDK should do that work,
but I couldn't find how to connect it with IVideoWindow.


* The use of IVideoWindow is not mandatory

Waiting for advises

Thanks
Ran

That was fast ...
Thanks

I Load the sample project to VC6,
And I get a linker error LNK2001,
About the sdk SetLayereWindowAttributes(..).
I add the library user32.lib to the setting of the project, but nothing changed.

Any idea ?

You need to use the latest lib from the platform SDK, the libs that comes with MSDEV are pre win2000 and will not know knowthing about SetLayereWindowAttributes

You right.
I don't have the last SDK so, I load the DLL.

There is also more information at http://www.codeproject.com/w2k/win2k_transparent.asp

Thanks a lot
